Since I'm new to this forum, Is this the right place to get information pertaining to building a outside
Bar? Looking for design and framing suggestions. Thanks

Welcome to the forums.

Yup.... this is the correct forum for your request.

Kind of a vague question.
Do you have some idea in mind that you want to put into use ?
Pictures of where you want to build are also helpful.......How-to-insert-pictures

I'm in PA. The patio is under roof. I had a footer poured for the bar/counter whenI did the patio . It's gonna be one straight bar. I'm leaning towards framing in wood instead of metal studs. Would like to incorporate some storage space underneath also. Still in early stages . Pre-planning.

Bar

Name:  image.jpg
Views: 90
Size:  16.8 KBI'm finally ready to start framing my outside bar. I will post some photos asap. I will have the backside open for storage,shelves,and refrigerator. I've decided to pour a cement top for the bar. I will be using pressure treated lumber. I'm not sure how to go about framing it though. Should I use all 2x4? What should my stud centers be? Exterior wil be the lick and stick that looks like stone.

Will this ever get wet, or is it under a shelter?

Lick and stick is a stone veneer.

The bar is under a roof however when it rains heavy the floor does get wet.

I would probably build it like a bank of euro cabinets (frameless cabinets), made out of some nice 3/4" baltic birch plywood. Apply a matching flat face frame made of pvc 1x2 to the bottom of the cabinets before you set them... (it won't rot if it gets wet, and will keep the cabinets elevated 3/4" off the wet floor). Fasten cleats to the concrete... set the cabinets over the cleats... attach the cabinets to the cleats. Cover the exterior sides that will get the stone with cement backer board.

I've worked on outdoor kitchens where they have had the cabinets sprayed with bedliner to make them weather resistant. Looks cool too.

I'm a electrician by trade....I have no idea what a frameless euro cabinet is. So,I don't use 2x4s for the frame?
I need to keep this pretty simple or I need to see some pictures of what your talking about.

A frameless cabinet is a plywood box with a door. Use your Google skills.

I think the frameless cabinet is a little much for my skill level with wood. I think I'm gonna stick to regular dimensional lumber like 2x4 and 4x4. Thanks for the help
